During our visit in 10/2016 we found Samburu Game Lodge changed compared to 2015 : Staff, boarding, accommodation, surrounding, wildlife : excellent. Perfect location for a safari trip. We stayed in one of the bungallows facing the river ( or riverbed, because it was completely dry). Nevertheless, swarming with wildlife , from a huge gang of some 100 noisy baboons,...

During our visit in 04/2017 we found Samburu Game Lodge unchanged to 2015 : Staff, boarding, accommodation, surrounding, wildlife : excellent. So I have to comment other actual comments : Njeri M "Disastrous" : Maybe they experienced a singular accident of organisation - which may happen everywhere. Noteworthy : The name "Njeri" points to a Kenyan citizen. Nedkelly 3 UK...

Hotel has a nicely ornated lounge, excellent food (buffet for all...

It is many years since we stayed. On arriving a young elephant appeared to welcome us. The room had a balcony overlooking the river. The hotel very rustic, but perfect. The grounds fantastic for just walking around to search for wildlife & birds. A small herd of elephants crossed over the river. Not far to travel for wonderful safari adventures....
